It’s a relatively short walk up Place Fell from Patterdale but well worth it for the extensive views to the larger hills from the South East in a clockwise arc to the north. Worth extending to take in Angle Tarn Pikes if you have time.

The best place in the Lakes as not crowded and comershalised. Great for walkers and photographers. The villegers were very frendly and helpful

Parked at Patterdale and combined Place Fell and Beda Fell for a great days walking. Great views of Ullswater and if you take the path on the Northern side by Ullswater as opposed to the main path, it’s very quiet.

An easy walk from Bridgend in Patterdale, across fields, follow the pipeline path and up to Place Fell. Great views along Ullswater and across Martindale.

Not the steepest and not the highest, but definitely worth the trip for its wonderful views of Ullswater both from summit and whilst walking on the lower path back to Patterdale.

We did the circular route up from Patterdale via Boredale Hause and then on to High Dodd and back via Ullswater shore path. Steep at times but worth it for the views over Ullswater.

Hiked this fell on a lovely clear day. Chilly at the top and a bit of snow but an exhilarating ascent and fantastic views at the top.

We have been climbing Place Fell for almost 30 years, fantastic views whatever time of year, although we prefer it in the Snow.
